Naturopathic Doctor & Lactation Consultant
Laura's passion for health equity, parental health and newborn care led her down her path to become a Naturopathic Doctor and International Board Certified Lactation Consultant (IBCLC). She studied Naturopathic Medicine at the Canadian College of Naturopathic Medicine (CCNM) in Toronto. It was during that time she was introduced to Dr. Jack Newman's International Breastfeeding Centre and the amazing work they do to help families achieve their bodyfeeding goals. Inspired, she decided to enrol and complete the necessary steps to become an IBCLC.
Laura's clinical focus in her private practice is with parents in the postpartum period, guiding them with feeding support and promoting infant mental health. Outside of patient care, she serves on the Board of Directors with Naturopaths Without Borders and trains health workers in Ethiopia and in Haiti in the area lactation.
